Making Centers Work
by Debbie Diller
This book will help teachers solve the dilemma: What does the rest of my class do while I'm working with a small reading group? Debbie Diller offers practical suggestions for over a dozen literacy work stations that link to instruction and make preparation and management easy for teachers. Learn how to set up work stations, how to manage them, and how to keep them going throughout the year.
Each chapter includes:
- how to introduce each station;
- materials to include at each station;
- what to model;
- how to solve problems;
- how to differentiate;
- how to assess and keep students accountable;
- reflection questions for professional development.
Materials in both English and Spanish are provided in the extensive resource section. Throughout the book the author has included photos of literacy workstations from a variety of classrooms in which she has worked to illustrate the methods discussed in the text.
